Muraglia faces disciplinary commission and possible four-year ban

Giuseppe Muraglia will face the Italian cycling federation (FCI) disciplinary commission this afternoon, 16:30, in Rome. The 28 year-old Italian was deferred by the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) anti-doping prosecutors with a recommended four-year suspension on June 19 in regards to a positive test for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG).

The rider from Bari, since suspended from Team Acqua & Sapone-Caffè Mokambo, tested positive for hGH in a post-race control after winning the 22nd Clasica de Almeria. CONI also investigated possible implications with the Oil for Drugs affair, however, the rider had denied any connections to Doctor Carlo Santuccione.
